Eight-year NFL veteran Terrance Copper will be returning for his third season with the Kansas City Chiefs after word just came out that he will be returning to the team with a new three-year contract.
The 6'0" 207 lb East Carolina product has been a vital member of the special teams unit for the Chiefs over the past two seasons.
In 31 games with Kansas City (including five starts), Copper has had 22 receptions for 225 yards. At 29-years old he will provide veteran leadership for a team that will be welcoming a new wide receiver in highly-touted first round selection Jonathan Baldwin.
Copper's best season as a pro came in 2006 for the Saints when he had 23 receptions for 385 yards and three touchdowns.
He clearly fits General Manager Scott Pioli's vision of "The Right 53" and will be welcomed back as a key member of the special teams unit.
The deal is obviously not official until Friday afternoon when players can begin to sign contracts, but Copper will be joining Casey Weigmann in returning to Kansas City.
